Where appropriate, we ask clinicians to consider moving people to hydrocortisone or another mid-strength steroid (such as, triamcinolone or hydrocortisone butyrate).
This will preserve the supply of Eumovate cream for those who cannot use other products.
We continue to review alternatives to ensure people can access suitable treatment.
